How were you able to pin point which services are those which are associated with those parts of the OS/programs? Are you using any tools or simply following a guide/win documentation?
Are you very network savvy then cadaveca?
Does you choice of firewall come backed with the cadaveca guarantee?
I know my general comp theory I would like to think, but networking is not something I have more than cursory knowledge of.
